Before the operation on the abdominal cavity, the cleansing of the bowel is most often required. This is done so that the surgeon can operate the pathological site in more comfortable conditions, as well as to prevent infection. Some food remains on the walls of the intestines during digestion, causing “slagging” of the body. Cleansing of the gut before the operation is carried out in several ways.
Before the operation, you need to consult with your doctor about the choice of the method of purification. Do not forget about contraindications. Most often, enemas or laxatives are used. An important role is played by the diet on the eve of surgery, the food should be “slagless.” 12 hours before the operation, you should not eat, so the stomach and the intestines should be empty.
Cleansing of the intestine before the operation can be carried out by an enema with warm boiled water. The liquid is introduced into the lower part of the large intestine to release the stool.
Laxatives used to cleanse before surgery.
The mechanism of their action is different: increased peristalsis or dilution of stool. The use of laxatives is safe and effective, but the dosage should only be determined by the attending physician.
You can cleanse the body with holistic methods.
